3rd Fed4FIRE Competitive Call for SME

Submission deadline: 12 May 2015, at 17:00 Brussels local time

Feasibility check deadline 29 April 2015, at 17:00 Brussels local time

For the feasibility check, it is essential that the proposers get in contact with the Fed4FIRE partner in charge of the testbed(s) which will be used for the proposed experiment to discuss its feasibility within the Fed4FIRE federation and the related specific requirements. Each proposing party must therefore contact the Fed4FIRE consortium to identify a possible Patron by contacting us at contact@fed4fire.eu. The proposing party must submit its draft proposal to the Patron by 29 April 2015, at 17:00 Brussels local time. The feedback which will be provided by the Patron latest by 7 May 2015 must be copied into section D of the proposal.


Financial information:

Maximum requested funding per experiment: € 15 000

o Extra € 5 000 per experiment will be allocated to the Fed4FIRE partners acting as patron

Total available funding for this Call: € 100 000

o Extra € 35 000 for this call will be allocated to the Fed4FIRE partners acting as patron


The proposer:

Can only be a single party eligible for participation in the EC FP7-projects

Can only be selected for funding for one proposal (even if the proposer submitted multiple

proposals that are ranked high enough to be selected for funding)

Parties having been selected in previous Fed4FIRE Open Calls are not eligible to participate


Other conditions:

Language in which the proposal must be submitted: English

Proposals must follow the provided template, including answers to experimenters questions

Proposals must be submitted through the online submission portal


Inclusion into the consortium:

Once an SME is selected to perform the proposed experiment, it will be contracted by the project coordinator (iMinds) as subcontractor. This implies that the administrative load for the applicant will be minimal as only an invoice needs to be submitted to iMinds at the end of the experiment with a description of tasks performed and results achieved as well as an evaluation on the use of the federated testbeds and its tools. This final report will be required before payment will be carried out.
